    Mitt and Ann Romney in D.C. for ?social visit? ? CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    Just saw a bit on TV news where he announced to this group, "We lost". Brilliant.

    And, as this shows, he apparently has a sense of humor about the debacle that was his candidacy:

    "We lost - our attempts to win an election by insulting 47% of the electorate failed. Perhaps if we shoot for insulting 60-70% of the electorate, next time we will win."

    Not only did Obama win by 4%, but he lost the middle class vote, won the the 1% vote, and won decisively among the welfare vote.

    Pretty fat margin of victory, both in what was being misreported by Gallup and Raz as a close race. In fact, it's a nice margin of victory, compared to many elections past, and not only in an election where the split nationally was supposed to be real close and polarized.

    Go figure.

    4% isn't much cushion.

    Go on. Start banning guns.

    What's 4% of 32,311,399? About 1.3 million votes?

    Or, stated in more succinct terms, CHEATING.

    And, since it worked so well for one brother, the other will probably try the same tactic in just a scant four years.

    Obama got into politics and became rich
